Diversity is a core value at Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy, LLP.  We believe that the diversity of our employees is a foundation of our success.  Our dedication to diversity has led to our senior partner's receipt of the first ever Diversity Award granted by the San Mateo County Bar Association.  

In September 2011, the San Mateo County Bar Association Diversity Committee presented Joe Cotchett with the first ever Diversity Award. Cotchett achieved this award by “demonstrating a meaningful and consistent commitment to increasing and maintaining diversity in San Mateo County at all levels of the legal profession.” California Chief Justice Tani Gorre Cantil-Sakauye honored Cotchett with her speech to the County Bar and Cotchett for all his work over the years to diversify the Bar.
